Riad has a very large central area as you enter with plenty of seating where you are served breakfast and also dinner if you choose to stay in. The night we stayed there was a thunderstorm so we enjoyed flavorful lamb and chicken tanjines. Our room on the second floor was quite large and well appointed with a nice bright bathroom, We enjoyed a restful night and early morning breakfast as we were on our way to the Sahara. Service and hospitality was satisfactory but nothing special.

I had booked this riad for my culinary tour group for 3 nights but after a series of problems, we checked out the next day.There was no-one to greet us, long waiting, renovations clearly not completed even though it was promised that they would be, leaking smelly toilet, inexplicable stains, darkness in the rooms, lack of professionalism with management and wait staff (we saw a waitor drop a piece of our breakfast bread on the floor and then promptly put it back on our platter!), cats in the kitchen, I could go on but I think you get it by now! To be fair, the dinner was quite delicious - and the rooftop has amazing views of Fes. But it stops there.

Room Tip: The better decorated rooms (yet dark) are on the ground floor off the central courtyard. However, they are not private.

This is indeed a riad as you would expect it interior-wise. Having tea or breakfast in the hallway is a treat. The first impression is not exactly copied in the rest of the hotel. Rooms on ground level are okay, but the one we got offered had a strange odour in the shower. So we were given one on the second floor that missed a bit of female touch. A double room with one chair, one glass for drinking and no water on the room. The tv set was not connected to the cable and the knobs on the shower where exchanged. After figuring that out, it still took a while for the water to heat up. They would be given similar ratings by us like from other people on the website, if they had paid a bit more attention to the details in the room.
In any case, we had a large enough room with some original elements: a three-step tile old oven or so, which was only useful to place your luggage on. Well-serviced every day and a good sleep. Staff was helpful, but didn't give you an exact coming home feeling that we experienced at other places in Morocco. Like said before: it just lacked something.
This riad is located in a quiet area though still close to the two main streets of the medina. So, food and shops are close by. It is also near the blue gate or the fountain square where there are taxis. So good connection possibilities. The view from the terrace is as good as from the more touristic spots around town; so make your way to the top in any case.

This riad was booked for a tour group of 7 for 3 nights. Things began badly when the riad was impossible to contact on our arrival outside the Medina. Rooms varied in quality. The riad had not been fully refurbished as advised. They seemed disorganised and took ages to sort our rooms. The worst aspect however was the smell from the leaky toilet in our room. We all moved out the next morning.
However the dinner we had there was very tasty and the chicken tagine was the yummiest on our tour

My girlfriend and I stayed at Yamanda after we had originally booked Riad Jardin Chrifa (the same owner), but due to an electricity complication at Chrifa, they put us in the suite in Yamanda for the same price without any questions or ask on our part. Moha and Youssef took very great care of us; they helped answer any of our many questions, and even let me keep two tea glasses because I mentioned that I liked them so much.

The only downside is that our room was quite cold at night with no heat and lacked overhead lighting at night. I know that they are working to improve the general infrastructure of the place- we saw repair people working during the day and Moha and I had a conversation about it- but this would be the final thing before making it a perfect stay.

The food was great- limited menu but deliciously home cooked. Great terrace view and a very convenient location to the main areas of the medina.

Room Tip: Suite has a view right out on the terrace and looks out at the medina- very nice!
